mean people suck
Way harsh review of leshtricity. Does it really matter when somebody first listens to the dead? Are they not COOL enough for you? They enjoy the music and that's all that counts. I wish my parents still payed my bills(don't you?) As for the show, not bad but a little short with some good spots

A historic Watchtower
This is not a show review, just an informative piece on the significance of the Watchtower here.
If you were into Peer-to-Peer music trading back in 2000/01, you probably saw this Watchtower on Napster. This particular version is what turned me on to the Dead. I was actually looking for Hendrix performances, and I figured I'd see what this was all about. After hearing Bob's gritty and very pirate-sounding vocals, I was hooked. Next song I downloaded was Eyes of the World, and whooo boy, the rest is history.
Oh Bob, you're so awesome. What a fucking pirate.
How come he never plays it with Ratdog? You'd think as 'passionately' as he sings it, he'd be a bit more into the song.

Rounded down because there are so many better ways to spend your time
1st Set: It always brightens my day to hear the downtrodden "Cold Rain," even if this version is too tempered. "Rooster" features a pathetically laughably Weir slide solo. "Stagger" is finely performed but the audio is so clean that very little of the charming gritty paunch is audible. "Uncle" has Jerry's lead while "Mexicali" innocuously and non-distinctively skips around. "Row" is a tad sloppy and doesn't add up to much. As typical for these bland nights, Brent's bluster and youthful swagger makes tunes like "Far From Me" palatable. Oh my goodness, where did the energy for this "Let" come from? It's not an all-time best...but certainly the guns are firing, and the punchiness is in effect.
2nd Set: Again, who could refuse a "China" opening? Well, I can considering how listless and boring this version is. Thankfully, the "Rider" is slightly perkier though it's nowhere near as lively as the following "Man Smart." "Ship" is well-sung by Jerry, but no different than other decent '87 versions. "Truckin" sashays, but its outward jam fails to make a distinction. Although the same can be said for "Drums," "Space" is long and involved. "The Wheel" is warmly humanistic. Very cute-Phil's way early on "Gimme" but compensates for it by adding a wry 'Hey' a few moments later. It's not bad while "Watchtower" is undernourished save the strong ending and Jerry's consistent muscular guitar. Check out Bobby's ridiculously goofy singing during the second verse. Ummm...we end the second set with a discardable, ha-ha?! "Ease."
"Black Muddy" is an appropriate encore choice.
2 1/2 stars

Is this the best Let it Grow ever? Maybe, but it is without a doubt one of Jerry's finest performances of the year. Check it out! The rest of the show is average with good sound.
